Treasured First Time

I'll put on the box of memories
My first time to say 'I love you, Ma and Pa'
My first time to open my eyes in this world
My first time to cry breathlessly

I'll put on the box of learnings
My first time to feel the so-called 'Love'
My first time to accept God
My first time to ask forgiveness

I'll put on the box of success
My first time to stand on my own
My first time to celebrate victory
My first time to earn money

I'll put on the box of overcomings
My first time to feel broken-hearted
My first time to lose my direction
My first time to feel like discriminated

Until the day I close my book
I could have a great look
Once in my time
I have just completed my boxes of lifetime

    A finely presented experience of contemplative individual. The realistic and philosophic touch are endearing. Liked the expression much.
